Pursue Your Love of Medicine with an A.S. Degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology

Keiser University’s Associate of Science degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology prepares students to perform diagnostic imaging procedures that enable doctors and other health care providers to see both the anatomy and physiology of the body’s organs and other internal structures. These unique imaging procedures can provide more detailed information than many other types of imaging procedures, and are used by physicians to diagnose a wide range of medical conditions and diseases. Nuclear medicine technology uses radiopharmaceuticals to provide clear and detailed images of organs and tissues and to chart disease processes. These images are analyzed by external devices called gamma cameras, which are designed to capture and interpret the radiation emitted by the body during the procedure.
